Mossberg 500

Mossberg's 500 pump-action shotguns offer an amazing amount of gun for an unbeatable price. The variety of stock, barrel and finish options alone would assure the place of the 500® in the hearts of outdoorsmen. But, of course, its performance in the field goes a long way in cementing its reputation with millions of hunters as well.

First and foremost, the 500 is built to the same uncompromising mil-specs as the renowned Mossberg 590. Then a host of features are introduced - Quiet Carry dual-action bars, 3" chambers and an ambidextrous safety, to name a few. Some models also include factory-ported barrels; the industry's first fully-rifled slug barrel and our Trophy Slugster. A simple change of barrel and/or choke tubes is all that's required to take one shotgun from upland birds to waterfowl, to turkey, to deer.

18.5" barrel. Tactical, recoil reducing pistol grip.

Nothing says you got the wrong house more than the sound of a 500 racking one into the chamber.....

I don't know, the boom may be more convincing.

I've owned 3 of these over the years. Loved them all. This is a simple and robust shotgun!

I keep mine right by the front door. I can't imagine a better choice for home defensive gun use.
